Sueños provides extracurricular education to students of all ages and their parents through three student programs, as well as a three-pronged support system to ensure their success.
Our Support system
At Sueños we believe that students need the support of their community to succeed. For this reason we have a three-pronged support system that
1. guarantees that parents, particularly mothers, are able to take an active role in their child's education,
3. that students have the nutrition that they need to be successful, and
3. that public schools are supporting students in the best way.
Sueños started as a seed in 2014 when the founder, Katie Korsyn, began volunteering with the working families and children in the Central Park of Antigua Guatemala.
Two years later, Katie decided to found a formal organization, Camino a la Escuela, which at the time had the goal of working with preschool-aged children to provide the tools necessary for success in first grade, while ensuring that families were able to navigate the process of enrolling their small children in primary school.
Almost two years after the founding of Camino a la Escuela, the organization found that there were new needs in the community, and better ways to provide for students of all ages. In 2018, Camino a la Escuela changed its name to better reflect its work with a population of students ages 0-18, as well as their families. Sueños stands for Sembrando Unidos la Educación para los Niños (which roughly translate to Together Planting Education for the Children) to represent a change in the focus of the organization: to provide the tools and motivation necessary for students to choose their own path in life, and achieve their dreams.
